This Saturday, June 9 at the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception in Tyler (10:00am), Bishop Joseph Strickland will ordain Deacon Hector Arvizu and Deacon Roselio Fuentes to the Priesthood of Jesus Christ. The Rite of Ordination has ancient roots and unfolds in a beautiful way. The joy of the ordination is magnified by the presence and prayer of the great number of the faithful who attend the Mass of Ordination.
